We believe that IDAutomation license agreements as they are written now are fair for IDAutomation and the purchaser. IDAutomation is a small company (under 2MM in annual revenue) which must have protection from legal issues that could jeopardize business. IDAutomation is aware that some other companies will honor such requests. Many of these companies are usually based in China, Russia or another country and do not really have an actual presence in the US. Some of these companies copy IDAutomation products, make changes, and sell them as their own. Most of these company websites state they are based in US or Canada and have fake addresses with forwarded phone numbers or use "address forwarding" or "business presence" services. It is very unlikely that these companies would be able to follow though with any legal claims; therefore, making a license agreement change with them would be useless.
Below is a list of previously requested modifications and the reasons IDAutomation cannot agree to the changes:
Indemnification - indemnification as related to the intellectual property of the software product is included in the license agreement. It states "IDAutomation shall defend, indemnify and hold Licensee harmless from any third party claims or lawsuits for intellectual property infringement for properly licensed Software provided by IDAutomation...". The indemnification section also states that "IDAutomation is not liable for claims based on infringement of industry standards, symbology standards or public domain specifications which were not developed by IDAutomation (including but not limited to operating systems, file formats and symbology specifications)". This limitation is necessary because as a small company, IDAutomation should not be required to defend a technology it did not create. Examples of such claims include encoding tiny URLs in QR-Code and the patent claims by Unisys for the use of GIF files (which expired in 2003) and the Data Matrix patent claims by Acacia and Veritec (which were ruled invalid and unenforceable in 2008). Many, if not all, of the standards and specifications that would apply today are in the public domain or are unenforceable because of prior art, and the inventors of the technologies will not provide indemnification for their use. In all such cases reported to IDAutomation by licensed customers, an alternative with no loss of functionality was provided by IDAutomation.
Limitation of Liability - our license agreement states "With the exception of (1) claims relating to intellectual property infringement as defined in section 6 or (2) Software purchased with the Unlimited Developer License or the Multi Site License, IDAutomation's entire liability under any provision of this entire Agreement shall be limited to twenty (20) times the amount actually paid by Licensee" This limitation is eliminated when the Multi-Site License or the Unlimited Developer License is purchased.
Warranty - our license agreement states "Although efforts have been made to assure that the Software is date compliant, correct, reliable, and technically accurate, the Software is licensed to you as is and without warranties as to performance of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or use, or any other warranties whether expressed or implied. You, your organization and all users of the Software, assume all risks when using it." We are unwilling to make any other warranties for the software. This is a standard practice in the software industry.
Controlling Law - unfortunately, as a small company, IDAutomation cannot change the location of jurisdiction from our location to another. This is primarily because IDAutomation is a small company and if any case would arise outside of our location, it would cause major disruption to the local operations of the company.
Additions - we believe the agreement as it exists covers all that is necessary and we should remain silent on other issues. IDAutomation does not believe any additions are necessary.
Other Changes - minor changes to IDAutomation's Software License Agreements may be made by an amendment in special circumstances. To request a change, modify the IDAutomationAmendmentTemplate.doc file and email it to IDAutomation for review. Be sure to describe your implementation of the software and the reasons for the change. When we do amendments, we require the purchase of the applicable Multi-Site License or the Unlimited Developer License for the product. In addition, the changes should be 50 words or less.
